Trying to find ways to increase milk production.  The tea and dark beer didn't work, already drinking tons of water - now on "lactation support" from whole foods.  Hope this works so I can build up a stash!! Jul 23 - 8

Sheaby The lactation support supplement I'm on has fenugreek seed in it.  I'm taking that, putting brewers yeast and flax on my steel cut oats, drinking gatorade...doing everything I can and still only getting 4-5 oz per pump.  It keeps up with her, which is all

Sheaby that really matters to me.  I would like to build up a stash in the freezer in case of an emergency or to donate to my local milk bank - but feeding Kathryn is my top priority!

krichar Shea... I was never able to pump much... I gave up and just nursed... He never went hungry.... They say to actually nurse to bring up supply, stimulates more than pumping... Do
You have to go back to work? I keep forgetting Americans only have 6wk mat

Sheaby She does nurse (is right now!), but the bottles are easier at night and for DH to feed her.  I'm not going back to work for now - but I am going back to school next month a few hours a week.  Between nursing and pumping though, it's tiring!

KTowne I agree with krichar I never could pump more than 2 ozs between both breasts, but my supply was fine, I ebfed until 13 monhs, just couldn't pump. Also sometimes straight doses of fenugreek, like pill form, might help more than a mixed supplement
